SEN Teaching

Special Educational Needs (SEN) teachers help children and young people who require extra support with their learning in a classroom setting. SEN teachers can work within mainstream schools, be that in a mixed class or special class, or they can work in SEN schools.

An SEN teacher will be responsible for students with:

● Visual or hearing impairment
● Behavioural or emotional problems
● Specific learning difficulties, such as dyslexia
● Mild to moderate learning difficulties
● Physical disabilities

Working as SEN teacher can be a truly rewarding experience – as a reputable teaching agency in London, we are dedicated to sourcing SEN teaching contract for talented candidates in schools throughout the capital.

What Does the Role Involve?

Depending on the type of SEN teaching role you have, you may be supporting one student at a time or groups within classes.

● Teaching the national curriculum
● Helping your students grow in ability, boost self-confidence and gain independence
● Planning lessons and prepare teaching materials
● Marking work and discussing progress with parents and/or carers
